Worst Health Coach Ever?

Monday, February 11, 2013

Yes, that is what my family called me this week. LOL. I had cravings for a "Garbage Plate" and had one. I ate some of the "Loaded Potato Chips" the waiter accidentally served us another night. (I'm not kidding... how "lucky" was that?) I also drank beer 3 nights out of the week.

But I did cook healthy meals at home. I bought heatlhy groceries and some not so healthy ones... I got portion controlled icecream sandwiches. I ate 2. On 2 different days. I don't think that was so bad. I put too much butter on the vegetables I served for dinner. Why do I feel like I'm confessing my sins? LOL

All of these were small things that I didn't think were a big deal, but I guess they do add up. In the meantime, I'm not sure either my fiance or my stepdaughter are eating their veggies or not overeating their starches during the day. Those sweets are supposed to be temporarily off limits to help us overcome cravings for them. And I certainly don't need to drink alcohol on weeknights... though it is awfully hard to find something healthy to order at the bar when trying to support our stepdaughter at open mic nights... I wouldn't feel right taking up a table and ordering only water.

So this week, I'll track my food and I will reset my goal of getting to exercise 3 days this week. I did do the "Just Dance" on the Wii with the kids, but I didn't make it to the gym. I am also going to ask my family to track. After all, no matter what kind of example I set, they are responsible for what they put into their own mouths. Hopefully we'll all get it together-- together.

BTW we all maintained this week. I don't think that is awful either, especially after last week's large losses...

I am determined to be a better example for my family this week.

    Its nice to know I am not the only mom that has weeks like that. The best thing to do is re-group and go for it again. The good news is that you maintained and are focused on a new week. Good luck this week. emoticon
